The “UFC 165: Jones vs. Gustafsson” billboard has just hit the Internet, and it is arguably the best mixed martial arts event poster in the history of ever.
It’s certainly a lot more creative than your typical UFC ad, where the two featured fighters are cut and pasted in standing opposite each other.
This promo is right up there with UFC 158’s, where Nick Diaz’s massive mug is hovering over welterweight king Georges St-Pierre.
Aesthetics aside, the poster does its job just like all of its predecessors have – show who is fighting who, when and where. UFC 165 showcases a light heavyweight title tilt between champion Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson.
The September 21 event takes place inside Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Canada.
Here is the card’s current lineup:
Nandor Guelmino vs. TBD
Mitch Gagnon vs. Dustin Kimura
Chris Clements vs. Stephen Thopmson
Mark Bocek vs. Michel Prazeres
Ivan Menjivar vs. Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto
Myles Jury vs. Mike Ricci
